The Growth of Fiber Access in Commercial Buildings

  2. 2. Introduction  A former consultant in Columbus, OH, Michael Marlowe has joined Chasetek, where he holds the position of director of strategy and vice president of new markets. Michael Marlowe knows all about the latest trends in technology and gives presentations on fiber-optic commercialization in Columbus, OH, and other cities. According to an article by Channel Partners, Vertical Systems Group has found that more than half of all commercial buildings in the United States have fiber- based Internet access. In preparing this annual benchmark, Vertical Systems measured company- owned and multi-tenant buildings with companies of 20 or more employees.
  3. 3. Fiber Access  Another measure used to gauge the growth of fiber-optic Internet service is the fiber gap, which counts the number of commercial buildings without fiber optic facilities. This gap dropped from 90 percent in 2004 to 50.4 percent in 2016. According to the Vertical Group’s research, active fiber optics is the most widely used technology in the United States to deliver carrier Ethernet services. Fiber access is also preferred by business customers and service providers for fast, dedicated Internet connectivity.
